“Spring into Easter” – Featured Card Showcase
It’s said that #3 is the charm…and so it was for our March Card Club Exchange! Another stunning group of cards from our talented friends using the monthly theme of Spring into Easter. There were a variety of techniques and a few ‘new’ ones such as Iris folding and airbrushing using Copics.
If you’ve looked ahead at our Card Club Exchange schedule we have a theme for every month to help give you a place to start. Consider it a guideline! This month’s cards included eggs, bunnies, butterflies, cows, flowers, chicks and cranes.
Here’s the March Featured Card, designed by Marianne C.:
Isn’t it adorable?! Did you notice all the piecing? Quite a few of the elements were cut out using her Silhouette Machine and then pieced together on her card. The cut up purple ribbon is a nice touch!

Sweet, right? There were so many wonderful cards this month. Make the time to stop by Simple Pleasures to see the other cards. It’s definitely worth it!
Even better – join us in April for our “Cards for Her” exchange. Cards need to be turned in by the end of the day Saturday, April 16. Put on those creative thinking caps…can’t wait to see what you come up with this time!
